Employee Giving Campaign Raises over $76,000

PIKE COUNTY, Ohio -- November 15, 2021 -- The 2021 Employee Giving Campaign faced some COVID related hurdles this year but with the help of our employees we finished strong. This year we raised over $76,000 to help charities in Pike, Scioto, Ross, and Jackson counties.

Despite the cancellation of the golf scramble, many of the sponsors still wanted to make their donation to this year’s campaign. The sponsors were thanked for their thoughtful gesture with a poster of appreciation. With the poster picture left to right campaign volunteers Michelle Teeters, Julie Minton-Hughes, Marlo Ridout, Cindi Remy, JD Dowell, Jessica Thorpe, Misty Bell. Back row, Travis McNeilan, Deneen Garner, Darren Wessel, and Steve Bell.

The money will be donated to a wide variety of charities that work with food pantries, children’s, veterans’, senior citizen’s and community programs. Because of your generosity these donations are making a direct impact on our communities.

Unfortunately two of our biggest events had to be canceled this year as a precaution with the uptick in COVID cases in September. While that meant a loss of money, it didn’t mean a loss of spirit in giving.

“I want to thank everyone who stepped up to the challenge this year, “ said Deneen Garner, Senior Community Relations Specialist. “We have so many volunteers who truly understand the importance of this campaign and take a personal interest in making sure we succeed. Thank you to all our employees who believe in our mission to help those in our community, and year in and year out are there to make sure these charities have our support with their donations.”

Special thank you to Joy Thompson, Julie Minton-Hughes, Valeria Johnson, Make Wellston Beautiful, Pike, Jackson and Ross County YMCA , and SOMC Friends Center for their auction donations.
